Transparent pricing policy

Transparent Pricing Policy

At DigitalOcean, we're on a mission to simplify the complexities of infrastructure and that includes pricing. We have a mantra internally called "keeping it DO-Simple" and we believe that all pricing models should be straightforward and predictable. That is why all Droplets are billed hourly, up until a monthly cap (672 hours or 28 days) so it's always February and there are no surprises at the end of the month when you receive your bill - it is that simple.

  • What form of payments do you accept?

    We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and PayPal. For additional payment options, like purchase orders and ACH, please contact sales.

  • Will taxes be included in my monthly invoice?

    Yes, if you live in Canada, India, or the EU. Please review the tax help sections on the Pricing & Billing page for more information.

  • How does hourly pricing work?

    All Droplets are billed hourly, up until a monthly cap. We have estimated that each month has about 672 hours (28 days). If you use your server for less than 672 hours during the month, you will be billed for each hour that you used it. If you use your server for more than 672 hours that month, you will be billed at the monthly cost, which is no greater than 672 hours.

  • Am I charged when I enter a credit card?

    No—when you enter a card, we only verify the card. Your card is charged at the end of the billing cycle.
